I've been thinking about a "Top Ten Songs" thread for a while. But I don't think I could narrow down my favorite artists, as it changes constantly, and my tastes are too eclectic. So I thought, why not just pick a song from all the artists that I enjoy.

This list took me about 15 minutes. Fortunately I was using my home computer and had access to iTunes. I could probably add a few more groups when I get a little more time to think about it.

My reason for posting was twofold: (1) Since a lot of us like the same music, I'm curious where our "favorites" are similar and not so similar... and (2) Hopefully, like the "New Music" thread, this could help introduce people to new music that they might enjoy.

I'll choose for both of us...

Evan - Peacemaker, Cowboy Mouth

Robbi - New Orleans, Cowboy Mouth (best played while going down on a woman!)
